america. so if we look at the numbers from some key swing states, checking out pennsylvania first, just 42% approve of the president and 49% disapprove. ohio, 46% approve of the president, 45% do not. that's a pretty even split right there. what do you make of that? do you think the president needs to put more focus on middle america, get them out there? we've seen it stepping up in that in terms of the white house adviser saying he's getting out there. >> right. this is why they think financial services regulation is the popular issue that can help them in a year when there is an anti-establishment populist movement pushing numbers against the democrats right now. president obama's numbers have been weak for a while, alex, in swing districts. in the most critical districts that will count and ke decide control of the congress this fall in the midterm elections. even while his national numbers were holding between 50% and 53%, this week for the first time we saw it drop to 45%, a record low, lower than where president clinton was in '94, before obviously republican tsunami kicked the democ

, as some have tried to scare america with. we need to educate people with what this really does. when they understand it, they are going to appreciate the fact that this was good for them and their families and their businesses and the country. >> mr. leader, do you have any names? >> i do not have any specific names. there are a lot of good people out there. tom-shall -- tom dachille is very good at communicating with the american people and understand the health care system. i do not know whether senator- all -- i do not know whether he would be interested or not. someone who understands the public and the legislation is the kind of person that you need. clearly, all of us need to be salespeople. every member of congress, the president -- he will speak about this repeatedly between now and the end of the year to make sure that americans understand what has been done. >> on that note, congressman, you have been traveling around into districts and helping vulnerable democrats. when it comes to the health care bill, talking to people that disagree and do not like it, what is the one th
